Angels: 3 players who resurrected their careers in Anaheim

When your team name is the Angels, it’s hard to ignore spiritual metaphors. After all, this is the same team who was featured in Disney’s classic, Angels in the Outfield. So on Easter Sunday, I thought it would be fun to look back at players who resurrected their careers in Anaheim.

The Angels have a rich history of players making comebacks wearing the halo on their caps. Six players have been named comeback player of the year, from Clyde Wright in 1970 to Tim Salmon in 2002.

Modern day fans remember Tim Salmon, who missed much of the 2004 season and all of the 2005 season recovering from a left knee and right rotator cuff injury.
